First Baptist Church Gadsden partners with local schools and businesses to feed hungry school children over the weekend while they are out of school. All of our food comes from Community Food Bank of Central Alabama. If you are interested in volunteering or if your business is interested in partnering with us in this ministry contact the church office via email at

We typically meet at our church on Thursday afternoon around 3:00pm and load boxes of food, go to a local school, pack “backpacks” with food, and distribute to classrooms. The whole process typically takes less than 30 minutes.

We also will gladly accept financial donations.
